    I'd say just do a couple 5 minute rounds of jumping rope if you can.
    You can do other exercises on rope jumping days but you don't have to.
    Jumping rope is good cardio, helps with footwork and recovery steps a lot....

    I never realized how tiring jumping rope actually is...still feels pretty good.

    Get hold of Buddy Lee's 'Jump Rope Training' Covers basic skills and more importantly, has sensible progression regimes and some tough sports specific workouts

    Make SURE you master the basic skills first!

    anyone who jumps rope for an hour has just wasted an hour they could be hitting people.

    Its Alucard, hes got th3 1337 sk1llz already.

    And Alucard, get the basics correct before you go skipping maraton. Ive seen people skipping like playground which does nothing to your footwork.

    From my experiences jumping rope has to be pretty hardcore for you to gain any meaningful cardio benefits vs. running. I do both when I am training.

    I used to do a thousand (takes about 10 minutes) jumps and it didn't really do much. My boxing coach took a look at me and pushed it:
    1. at least 15-20 minutes total. Sometimes I do 25 minutes
    2. Every 2-3 minutes, do a minute of single leg lifts (like try to get your legs to your chest as you jump).. one leg of course. Same pace. That way you get interval cardio workout
    4. In between, I add in a minute of Kicking the foot back (foot to butt) then kicking it forward (not too far, like just throwing out a leg as if you are about to walk) while jumping on the other.
    3. Last 3-5 minutes, do the single leg lift burnout.

    I used to feel like I'm done working out after this, but after a couple of minutes of rest (stretching, etc) I can move onto padwork, bagwork, sparring.

    BTW I don't remember the importance of getting the "basic skills" first. I had to jump rope in my bullshit PE class in Korean middle school so I was pretty good at it before I started kickboxing. So listen to that part of the thread if you feel its important.

    Jumping rope is just like jogging so you will get out of it what you put in.

    If you do 3x3 minutes slow skipping you will get about as fit as if you were jogging slowly for 3x3 minutes.

    My recommendation would be to do 5x5 minutes and within the 5 minutes do various "exercises" such as "sprinting" (going as fast as you can) or lifting your knees up as high as you can for 20 second intervals so that you are doing something difficult for at least 20 seconds out of every minute. Once you get fit you can make the periods between exercises shorter or the exercise periods longer. In between each round for the "break" you can do 20 or 30 press-ups.

    Remember once you get good at skipping it takes very little effort to just skip (even quite quickly) so the normal skipping becomes "active rest". It is up to you to make it into HIIT rather than long slow distance training by mixing it up.

    We used to do this three days a week as our warmup but you could do it more or less depending on what else you are doing. If you are doing nothing else you could do it 5 days a week no problem. It is just half an hour of HIIT.

    I use it as a 1 min "rest" between sets of pads etc., shooting for min. 100 skips in that time.
